[This from Denise Spafford on June 15th]
It was a dark rainy night but her mission was clear. She had to lay those eggs and hide them from the humans. As the sun came up Tony and Becky Timms were diligent in their search. They located the tracks and followed them to the nest! The rest of the GSP turtle team was mobilized and the search was on. Try as they might the team could not find her eggs. They searched and searched and dug up half the beach. Momma turtle had fooled them! She hid those eggs so they couldn’t be found. The team thought they had a false crawl. Dejectedly they all went home. The recon photos were viewed by Share the Beach’s best analyst. He decided there was one more place to look. The Team Leaders went back to the scene and began to dig. Low and behold the eggs were found! Momma turtle had not fooled the Share the Beach Team! False Crawl G-01 changed it’s call sign to G-02 due to hatch on or about August 1.
